Only Self was recorded in Chicago at Bricktop Recording Studio with Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos, Like Rats, Lord Mantis) mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Full Of Hell), and completed with artwork by Dom Pabon.
With the "Neuroprison" release, JESUS PIECE vocalist Aaron Heard discloses, "To be locked in a Neuroprison is to spend most of the day lost in your head while the world keeps turning around you."
The write-up at Kerrang offers in part, "the United States is producing some of the best hardcore the country ever has. And Philadelphia's Jesus Piece might as well be the poster boys for the movement."
Unleash the new JESUS PIECE track "Neuroprison" at Kerrang RIGHT HERE.
JESUS PIECE is quickly developing a reputation as one of the heaviest, most uncompromising acts both on record and on the stage. With the brutalizing grooves of Disembodied, Turmoil, Harm's Way, Xibalba and similar acts, the band incorporates elements of noise, ominous tones, and haunting atmospheres into their dynamic songwriting. With crushing, modern production, the eleven new tracks on their Only Self debut LP place JESUS PIECE among the scene's darkest and heaviest acts and delivers one of the most anxiously-awaited albums of the hardcore/metal underground this year with Only Self, a record which proves itself as one of the year's most vicious releases.
Southern Lord will release Only Self on CD, LP, and digital formats on Friday, August 24th. Find digital preorders at Bandcamp where "Curse Of The Serpent" is streaming HERE, and physical preorder options HERE.
JESUS PIECE has toured mercilessly alongside Darkest Hour, Comeback Kid, Burn, Knocked Loose, Terror, Vein, Year Of The Knife, and many more across North America and Europe over the past year. The band will also make their return to This Is Hardcore in July, performing with the likes of One King Down, Ten Yard Fight, E.Town Concrete, Sick Of It All, Arkagnel, Eighteen Visions, All Out War, Merauder, Harvest, and many more. Watch for new tour dates for JESUS PIECE to continually to be announced throughout the year in support of Only Self.

JESUS PIECE is a band that works tirelessly to play to everyone they can. Their anthems lyrically range from personal struggle and loss, to racism, police brutality, and many other social and political injustices. The band formed in 2015 and self-released their first demo/EP in the same year, followed by a self-released EP in the Summer of 2016. Bridge Nine Records released a split 7" between JESUS PIECE and Malice At The Palace in early 2017. The band has paved their own way into the national scene by booking multiple headlining coast-to-coast tours among many bouts of regional touring and performances at notable festivals including This Is Hardcore, Nature World Fest, Sound And Fury, FYA Fest, and others.
Review copies of Only Self will be released in the weeks ahead. For coverage of JESUS PIECE
